To think this all started with a single cold email, sent back in 2003. I had a few music videos under my belt (notably Kutmasta Kurt / Kool Keith, Biz Markie, The Dickies), so I felt confident enough to cold call. I emailed Chris (Peanut Butter Wolf) at Stones Throw and pitched an animated music video for Madlib. Chris said, “We got a single from MF DOOM we’re putting out called ‘Money Folder.’ (When did it turn into ALL CAPS?) Maybe you could do something for that. There won’t be a lot of money in it, but it could be fun.” (Did he say MF DOOM, or Madvillain?)
